Quitting BTYB?

Maybe by definition, but not in spirit.

I've been thinking a lot about BTYB / LN over the past couple weeks, which lead to the survey from yesterday (please take a minute to fill it out if you haven't already). Tonight I had a conversation about all this with Carl Zetterlund, a long time reader who is doing a segment of LN with me right now.

It's something that I've always dabbled with in my free time, and I would love for it to be a major part of my life once I retire from the service.

That's one of the major reasons that I decided to move over to this platform instead of an older, more established site. The opportunities to have a conversation seem much greater.

When I was going through the list of things that I should blog about, it quickly became obvious that it had to be the two subjects I'm most passionate about: my family and my job.
